Caltrans District 7 encompasses Los Angeles and Ventura counties, as part of the greater Metropolitan Los Angeles Area, one of the largest urban regions in the United States. District 7 has a rapidly growing mass transit network, and its temperate weather, abundant walking and bicycling trails and plentiful recreational opportunities are key for active transportation. The District is a dynamic economic region and is home to the entertainment industry, headquarters to a variety of Fortune 500 Companies, and also a mixture of agriculture yields, and natural settings.
Caltrans District 7 Active Transportation Plan
The Caltrans District 7 Active Transportation (D7 CAT) Plan will identify locations for bicycle and pedestrian improvements on, across, or parallel to the State Highway System across Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The Plan’s overarching goals are to strengthen and connect local active transportation networks and improve safety and access for people. There is also a large emphasis on social equity, partnerships, and robust engagement.
A message from our District 7 Director, Tony Tavares:
“Today we must plan and build a transportation system that incorporates alternative means of transportation and that also considers equity. Public input on our Active Transportation Plan is crucial to the development of safe pedestrian, bicycle, and public transit facilities on our highways.”
The public & partners will play an important role in shaping the plan by participating in online map-based surveys. The surveys allow people to indicate where they have bicycling and walking concerns along or near state highways. Survey responses will provide helpful data about the type and location of improvements needed.
Public input will play an important role in the outcome of the Plan. Your feedback will help us complete the picture and understand why certain connections, locations, and corridors are important to the community and the opportunities and challenges associated with them.
